United Grain Company (UGC) announced a new drive into markets in southeast Asia. 

UGC General Director Mikhail Kiyko indicated his company has already supplied grain to Thailand, and wanted to see a rise in exports. 

Hen was speaking in Bangkok during a mission this week organised by the Russian Export Centre.

‘The company is implementing a project to build a Far East grain terminal in the port of Zarubino,’ he said. 

The facility is planned in Primorsky region giving direct access to the Pacific. 

‘This will facilitate expanded access to markets in Southeast Asian countries, particularly for agricultural producers in Siberia.

‘For that reason, we are actively working to strengthen ties in Asia.’

UGC has already supplied grain to Thailand, said corporate communications head Maxim Timofeev, who took part in the event.

‘We plan to expand the geography and volume of exports to other countries in this region in future,’ he said.
